I have a problem with my drivers side window track. In the winter when the window freezes to the rubber and you open the door the track still moves the ½” while the window remains stuck in the up position (no movement). This makes the window fall off the track.

I have taken the door panel off and tightened / adjusted the window a couple times so I have that down. There is an epoxy or hot melt adhesive in the center of the window track that is not holding and I assume it is there to prevent this problem. What is the epoxy or adhesive to use?


Thanks in advance…

Not sure about the sticky stuff but

I use a silicon based grease on all the rubber seals - the door seals in particular.

It makes a mess of the glass for a while but it stops anything sticking to it!?

Another one to try is bees wax? I have used it for years to lube the seals on my diving suits - once a week through the worst of the winter should do it!?

Wouldnt it be easier to stay home in front of the logs rather than drive out on the snow?

same stuff

Again good quality Silicone Grease - something like Dow Corning MS4. Rub it in sparingly but often - keeps the seals for years.

Again from a commercial diving background we use the stuff on all rubber seals in helium atmosphere, subsea, welding habitats.

But use sparingly - wipe on, wait ten minutes - wipe off. and keep it off paint - doesnt harm it but makes greasy marks! - the only way to clean it off paint properly is to use denatured alcohol which will also strip the waxes!
